John Densmore made an appearance on the Morning Joe TV show this morning. Morning Joe is a daily political roundtable discussion hosted by former Florida congressman Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski and occasionally the delve into popular culture and have an actor or rock star to discuss the issues surrounding a cause they’re interested in, and Densmore was on talking about his book The Doors Unhinged: Jim Morrison’s Legacy Goes on Trial.
The interview covers a lot of the same territory as in other recent interviews, a bit of Doors history (where did you meet Jim Morrison?), the death of Ray Manzarek, the events of the trial spurred by events surrounding The Doors of the 21st Century. Densmore did go a bit more into former Police drummer Stewart Copeland’s involvement in the affair, and how he ended up testifying on behalf of Densmore. You can watch the six minute video at Morning Joe: Defining the legacy of The Doors.
This isn’t the first time Densmore has appeared on a cable news show he has recently appeared twice on HuffPost Live. In 2010 Lawrence O’Donnell had Florida Governor Charlie Crist on The Last Word discussing the pardon of Jim Morrison in 2010 for the Miami incident.
